We could not identify the funding rounds of some of the companies. We commenced our research began by exploring the companies' websites. The idea here was to comb through the sites, annual reports, press releases, etc. to find the requested data. However, this research strategy did not yield the results we were seeking. We believed this strategy would work as companies often publish details about their funding on their websites. At most, we found details on company overview, products/services, etc.
Next, we searched through company databases such as Crunchbase, Pitchbook, StartupHub, among others, to see if they published the requested details. This strategy worked to an extent as we found information on funding, company overview, acquisition, etc. for most of the companies, but there were no funding details available for others. We believed that this approach would work as these databases tend to publish information about various companies.
Finally, we scoured through media publications and websites specializing in investments and startups such as PR Newswire, Fintech Futures, Venture Beat, etc. to find any articles or media publications that could provide information related to the companies' acquisitions, activity status, and funding. However, this strategy did not work as there were no such publications available. We believed that this approach would work as these sites usually publish business-related news about different companies.
Therefore, after exhausting the research strategies above, we have provided all the requested details as available in the public domain with the conclusion that the companies we could not provide any funding data for have not received any funding between 2016 and 2019.
